Nissan Patrol 2012 manual-gearbox model now in UAE

It is rather odd that we’re having to depend on our readers for important car launches when it is us who should be hearing from carmakers. Nissan has already plopped the manual-gearbox version of the 2012 Nissan Patrol in some showrooms around the UAE, and these are the first photos.

Regular reader Rahul Jones, a Nissan owner, caught sight of this 2012 Nissan Patrol at the Dubai showroom this week.

Externally, it looks just like the popular automatic version, but inside, there is a tall manual shifter sticking out of the centre-console and there are three pedals in the footwell.

There are only two trim levels for the manual version, and both get the 320 hp 5.6-litre V8 engine, which means the 400 hp V8 option can only be had with an automatic. The base model gets cloth seats, terrain management system, wood trim, basic stereo with CD changer and common power options. The higher model additionally gets fog lamps, navigation and leather. That’s about as much info as we have at the moment.

The base version is priced at a steep Dhs 197,000, while the optioned-up model goes for Dhs 210,000.

This manual version of the new model comes on the heels of the quiet relaunch of the older-generation Nissan Patrol Safari two-door in 4.8-litre form for the first time, with a choice of manual and automatic gearboxes. We also had to hear about that one from another reader.

Keep track of updates in the Nissan Patrol buyer guide.

  11. I have 2012 5.6 Nissan patrol manual transmission

    I have serious problem with the transmission.

    When I do hardcore desert drive the transmission shifting is very hard in fact some time I have to stop he engine and shift the gear and then restart the engine.

    Does anybody have similar issue?

    • You’ve cooked the clutch fluid. Flush it out and replace with DOT5.1 fluid which can withstand higher temperature, this solved the exact same problem I had with my V8 G61 (race) Patrol.

  12. i have nisan petrol 1999 3d6 with fuel injection problem how i fix
